With so many natural disasters with record hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, and destruction of lives and properties around the world lately, it's awful to see that many countries have taken a real beating in the past 3 months! Surely we hope our contribution will make one feel better and our prayers, thoughts, and supports go out to everyone effected by all those terrible events.
Another 18 wheeler trailer filled with nearly 4500 gallons of Latex paint and supplies to its final destination to Dominican Republic in Caribbean. Huge thanks to the UPS Foundation for providing to our friends at Grace Dominican Mission Team an in-kind 40 ft shipping container to ship the paint. It heads out on Thursday to Los Gomez in the Dominican Republic. This paint, which we estimate will impact over 2,000 people in the region, is so much larger than anything we have attempted in Caribbean. Let’s pray the container gets through all the hurricanes and impacts many people in the country. Our hope is that all underserved populations may live in a very comfortable and painted home one day.
We are all very thankful to Rick Raymond, Grace Dominican Mission Team leader and First Vice President at Wells Fargo in Battle Creek in Michigan for what his organization has done to help move this project from concept to reality and Rony Delgarde for his continued leadership and the great work, his dedication and generous heart. “I don't know what your belief system is, but everyone involved in this project feels that God's hand has been on it from the start- casting, directing, and guiding us every step of the way. “ Rick Raymond.
Stay tuned for full details about the progress and livelihood improvement in the regions. The pictures are from our partners and volunteers loading all the paint onto the container.
